THE DRUMS Release New Single "Heart Basel"

The Drums' forthcoming album "Abysmal Thoughts" is already being lauded as a return to form, and today the band reinforces that notion with a new, quintessential Drums single. "Heart Basel," the second single off of the band's fourth full-length, is yet another excellent, summertime-primed pop gem. Listen to the track HERE.

I went through the most significant breakup of my life during the making of “Abysmal Thoughts.” During that vulnerable period, I attached myself to this guy who did not care at all for my feelings, but was good at pretending that he did. In retrospect, I think I knew deep down that he didn’t give a shit about me. But I continued to let him treat me like garbage because I thought if I had this handsome guy with me that somehow I wasn’t doing too bad. Of course now - with some professional help - I see that I was just lacking self-love and while it’s unhealthy to stay in that headspace for very long, it does make for good songwriting. ‘Heart Basel’ is a song about him treating me ‘kindly’ at Art Basel in Miami and then treating me like garbage after he got what he needed. You live and you sometimes learn.
— The Drums' frontman Jonny Pierce on the new song
